    My guest this week is Eloise Rickman, mother of Frida and author of www.fridabemighty.com, a brilliant website that chronicles Eloise and Frida's adventures via homeschooling and gentle parenting. Passionate about peaceful parenting, creating meaningful family rhythms, and incorporating a Montessori philosophy into her home, THINGS WE DISCUSS IN THIS PODCAST: The role of the mother in society - how staying at home to raise our children can be the ultimate feminist act Celebrating raising children as a beautiful adventure Why learning in its own right is a privilege Celebrating work for its own moral joy, not just a means to a financial end The importance of the outdoors and its impact to improve everyone's mental health An organic adventure - from learning about alternative parenting methods with her own child to creating a beautiful business that helps other parents Praise and punishment - are these outdated concepts and do they work with kids? Why women often seem to end up staying small in their ambitions - does this happen in our responses to praise at school? BOOKS WE DISCUSS: Unconditional Parenting: Moving from Rewards and Punishments to Love and Reason by Alfie Kohn There's No Such Thing as Bad Weather: A Scandinavian Mom's Secrets for Raising Healthy, Resilient, and Confident Kids (from Friluftsliv to Hygge) by Linda Akeson McGurk How Children Learn, 50th anniversary edition by John Holt BLOG POST BY ELOISE ON PRAISE: https://fridabemighty.com/2018/03/02/in-praise-of-not-praising-why-its-bad-to-say-good-job/
